Torres, Gerrard and Johnson fit!?

Liverpool, who have lost their last four matches, are looking to bridge the gap with league leaders Manchester United in the North West Derby.


Liverpool team news

Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez will give his injured trio of Steven Gerrard, Fernando Torres and Glen Johnson every chance to prove their fitness.

Gerrard is the biggest concern of the groin injury victims but he received treatment on Friday, and that will continue right up until the Anfield match.

Torres and Johnson are much closer to being confirmed in the starting line-up ahead of the match but winger Albert Riera (hamstring) and defenders Martin Kelly (ankle) and Sotirios Kyrgiakos (knee) are out and midfielder Alberto Aquilani - who played for the reserves on Wednesday - will not be considered.


Manchester United team news

Wayne Rooney remains a doubt for Manchester United.

The United striker has been out with a calf injury since England's World Cup qualifier in Ukraine a fortnight ago.

Manager Sir Alex Ferguson is hopeful the former Everton star will be fit to feature on Merseyside but admits it is far from certain.

Veteran Ryan Giggs is poised to return after suffering a knock in last week's defeat of Bolton Wanderers and Patrice Evra has overcome a heel problem.

Darren Fletcher (groin) is another doubt while Park Ji-Sung (knee) is set for a couple of weeks on the sidelines.



Liverpool: Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Skrtel, Aurelio, Insua, Mascherano, Babel, Lucas, Kuyt, Benayoun, Gerrard, Torres, Voronin, Ngog, Spearing, Plessis, Dossena, Cavalieri.

Manchester United: Van der Sar, Foster, Kuszczak, Neville, O'Shea, Brown, Ferdinand, Vidic, J Evans, Evra, Valencia, Carrick, Scholes, Anderson, Giggs, Berbatov, Owen, Welbeck, Macheda, Nani, Fabio, Rafael, Fletcher, Rooney.

Lionel Messi Deserves Ballon d'Or

I dont know if already posted so if it has been,  then just delete :) also u can delelte cuz its kinda old news

Cristiano Ronaldo believes that Lionel Messi should win the coveted Ballon d'Or award and feels that Barcelona are still a better team than Real Madrid.

The Portuguese star was in generous mood, confessing that the Argentine achieved more than him last term and should be crowned Europe's best player.

Messi is seen as the favourite for the France Football prize, which is due to be announced in December, with Ronaldo also being mooted to retain the gong.

"He's the favourite. He won the Champions League, the Primera league title. Why not him? If he wins it, he will have deserved it," the Madrid star told France Football magazine.

Ronaldo was then asked about Barcelona and the differences between them and Madrid. He stated that, due to their unity, the Catalans are currently the stronger of the two outfits.

"Barcelona play better football [than Madrid], but why?" he continued.

"Because they have been together for several seasons, not two months. Barca are better than us today but the real question is, who will be in front at the end of the season?"

Pictures are coming right up!



Rafael Benitez hailed Liverpool's 2-0 victory over Manchester United as the 'perfect response' and urged his side to use the triumph to embark upon a winning streak.
The Reds brought a run of four straight defeats to an end with a dominant win against the Red Devils, leaving the boss delighted by his team's show of character in what was his 200th league match in charge.

"I am really pleased for the club, the players and the staff. We knew we needed to change our luck and it was a fantastic victory," he told his post-match press conference.

"Before we were talking about how it was maybe the perfect game to respond, and it proved to be the case. We needed to produce a performance against a good team in front of our fans and I think it was a fantastic performance from the players.

"It was important to score and to win, but it was also important to do it in the way we did, with the team defending well. They had some set pieces at the end but we defended well, so I am really pleased for Pepe and the defenders.

"We needed the three points for our confidence, so I think it will be a big boost for the team, especially because it is against a good side. The fans are delighted and you can see that the players are in the same mood. It is very positive, but we have a game in three days so we need to be ready.

"If we can keep the momentum, I am sure we a have good team that can win games in a row, but we have to try and win on Wednesday and then continue against Fulham.

"The players didn't want to lose. We wanted to win and show character and today was the perfect response."

After dominating throughout the first period, the Reds finally made the breakthrough courtesy of a sublime strike from the returning Fernando Torres.

Cheesy post is made of cheese.

Dear ONTD_FBers...

This was probably the best moment of my life:


Football makes us happy. It makes us sad. It can get us so riled up that we want to go outside and hit the first person we see with an umbrella. But, at the end of the day, every single one of us is in love with football.

So shut the bloody hell up and get on with being happy that you support someone who, whether they won, drew or lost, make you fucking proud.



And guys? If you don't agree with someone, shut up and talk to someone else ;)
Uh, do we have a "Let's all love each other!" tag?
